John Muir Elementary School

Project Description

Working with school staff, students, and community members, Convene Principal Landscape Architect Eric Higbee designed a series of creative interventions to breathe life and play back into the school grounds for this culturally diverse elementary school. Through a series of community meetings, Eric established the needs and desires of all stakeholders and developed a series of design alternatives for community review. Once a final vision was established, Eric designed within a limited budget to draft construction documents and plans for fundraising.  Features of the play area include vegetable beds, a butterfly and hummingbird garden, an outdoor classroom, two rubber-surfaced play mounds, colorful paint striping, play equipment for ages 2-5, improved fencing, and a grass play area.
